STRING FOR STRING INSTRUMENTS.
Application filed March 29, 1926, Serial No. 98,333, and in Germany October 12, 1925.
My invention refers to strings for string instruments. It is an object of my inventlon to provide means whereby a string can be inserted in and mounted on the peg or screw of the instrument with greater ease and se curity than was hitherto possible.
As is well known to every violinist and to users of string instruments in general, the mounting of strings and more especially metal strings (steel strings) is rendered difficult and even dangerous by the fact that the comparatively rigid string can be placed around the peg only with comparatively great expenditure of power. It is further necessary to so arrange the windings of the end of the strings which encircle the peg that they cross each other, in order to prevent the strings from slipping off the peg.
In the string according to the present invention a short piece of soft metal is attached to the end of the string to be mounted on the peg, preferably by means of eyes formed on the string and on the soft metal piece. In a preferred form of my invention I attach to the string a soft metal wire, the ends of which are twisted together to form a strand. This strand is introduced into the transversal hole in the peg and is wound around. it in lieu of the string itself and owing to its pliability and lack of resiliency will easily apply itself against the peg without any tendency to slip off, thus greatly facilitating the mounting of the string.
In the drawings affixed to this specification and forming part thereof a string embodying my invention is illustrated diagrammatically by way of example.
In the drawings Fig. 1 is a View of part of the string with the soft metal strand. attached to it.
Fig. 2 is a similar view illustrating the manner in which the strand is introduced into the hole in the peg, and
Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the peg with the strand wound around it and securing the string in place.
Referring to the drawings, 5 is a string, such as a steel string, designed to be mounted on a violin, guitar or other string instrument and a is an eye formed at the end of the string 0 is a short strand formed of a doubled soft metal wire twisted to form a strand with an eye at one end which is locked in the eye a of the string b.
lVhen it is desired to mount the string 6 in place, the free end of the strand 0 is introduced into the boring or hole 03 of the peg e and on the peg being turned about its axis the strand 0 will be wound around it and will apply itself strongly against the circumference of the peg without having any tendency of slipping off.
The term soft metal as used in the specification and the claims appended to it is meant to include any metal which has no particular hardness and substantially no re siliency, but will substantially retain the form imparted to it by bending.
I wish it to be understood that I do not desire to be limited to the exact details of construction shown and described, for obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.
I claim 1. In a string for string musical instruments, in combination, a resilient strand and a pliable, non-resilient strand carried by one end thereof.
2. In a string for string musical instruments, in combination, a resilient strand and a twisted pliable, non-resilient strand carried by one end thereof.
3. In a string for string musical instruments, in combination, a steel strand and a twisted pliable non-resilient strand carried by one end thereof.
4. In a string for string musical instruments, in combination, a steel strand and a twisted pliable non-resilient wire carried by one end thereof.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
ADOLF GLASEL.
